Sometimes special lots of tobaccos are too small to produce a full-fledged blend but the leaves are too good to pass up. This is where Single Batch—a limited production gem from Padilla—comes into play. The Padilla brand is built upon high quality, low volume handmades that utilize rare, very expensive materials. It continues to earn high ratings, receive top honors, and wow enthusiasts at the same time. Single Batch, Ernesto Padilla's lowest production creation to date, is a medium-bodied cigar crafted with Padilla’s signature combination of substance and swagger. The first release is known simply as Padilla Single Batch #17RC, a factory code for the blend during testing. A dark, sultry Ecuadorian Habano wrapper—from the highest priming— wraps well-aged, Cuban seed long fillers from Nicaragua. Look for cedar, earth, coffee, and caramel flavors and a hearty, peppery finish. The complex bouquet is delivered in smooth, balanced fashion. Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club members can enjoy this one with Sea Dog Brewing Company’s Old East India Pale Ale. Your favorite brewski will likely please as well.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
